Can’t wait for today’s 10 a.m. announcement about Coachella? Me, neither.
Until then, relive Coachella 2012 by checking out our photo galleries. My favorite is Sunday, weekend one.
The announcement has me wondering how Goldenvoice will top this year (because you know they will):

Could musical masterminds Goldenvoice pull off a third weekend of Coachella, this one being an all-hologram line-up starring dead musical legends?
It’s doubtful, to say the least, but promoters behind the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival could shed light Monday on their plans for next year.
The promoters posted a photo to the festival’s Facebook, Twitter and website on Friday. It shows iconic Coachella scenes with “Monday 10 a.m. PT” splashed across the photo.
Only the words “Pssssst……. pass it on” are written underneath, the kind of cryptic message that Coachella fans now expect from the Los Angeles-based Goldenvoice.
It set off a firestorm of speculation about what promoters have up their sleeves for 2013.
Despite the sometimes absurd guesses, most Coachella fans and music media bloggers settled on an expectation that Goldenvoice will announce the dates for next year’s festival.
More than 3,500 fans “liked” the photo on Facebook and spent the weekend arguing whether it was too early for tickets to go on pre-sale or whether they were ready to shell out the cash for next year.
If the announcement is, in fact, the 14th annual festival dates, it would be the earliest notice in festival history.
The promoters announced this year’s dates on May 30, 2011, when it also debuted plans to expand into two weekends.
